Home to 60 deep pit coal mines in the past

Once upon a time the Rhondda, Cynon and Taff-Ely valleys, all three of which go make up the Rhondda Cynon Taf county borough here in South Wales, were home to a bourgeoning coal and steel industry.

The decline of coal and steel making in the UK has redefined the area in terms of both population and employment, but whereas the 60 deep pit coal mines have been closed down, (the last ones being decommissioned in the 1980s), the excavation of coal still carries on in several open cast coal quarries, especially in the north of the region.

The advent of Health Impact Assessments (HIAs)

Any open cast coal mine has to have an HIA. HIA stands for Health Impact Assessment, which is designed to study the potential health risks that open cast coal mining can expose the surrounding population to.

Taking a holistic approach to health and well-being

HIA practitioners use a holistic approach when it comes to assessing any health risks. They don’t just care about the absence of disease, they also look at the complete picture including physical, social, mental, and spiritual well-being according to the European Centre for Health Policy, WHO Regional Office for Europe; Gothenburg Consensus Paper (1999).

There are 3 types of HIA.

Prospective HIAs are designed to be carried out when the project they are aimed at is still under development, in order to be able to influence decision-making.

Concurrent HIAs are carried out at the same time that a project is being implemented. This allows for more detailed information to be available, but does limit part of the final decision making process.

Retrospective HIAs are carried out after implementation has taken place. Their ability to influence decision-making is only retrospective, but the findings detailed in these reports can be useful for other similar projects being considered.
